Training Program

Delve offers clinical training to master or doctoral level students, LPCs, ALMFTs, LSWs, post-docs, or pre-licensed therapists. We pride ourselves on thinking deeply and flexibly about approaches to psychotherapy, and we train our trainees to do the same.

Further, we believe that trainees are stewards for the profession and its institutions. We train our supervisees to be aware of and dedicated to positive change efforts and advocacy in mental health care. All members of our practice are invited to contribute to the training experience through provision of didactics, development of new training opportunities, direct supervision, steering initiatives, and program evaluation and feedback.


There are two primary types: degree-seeking (e.g., a master’s level student working toward their graduation from a clinical mental health counseling program) and license-seeking (e.g., a trainee that has graduated but is still working toward their LPC license).

Treatment Modalities

Trainees can expect to provide individual, family, and couple’s therapy in a virtual format. While we cannot guarantee that we can provide group therapy options, we do offer group psychotherapy (as a practice) and will maintain an ongoing effort to build group opportunities for at least some trainees. Trainees should inform their supervisor and the TD if they are interested in co-facilitating a group.

Degree-seeking students can expect to complete approximately 10 clinical hours per week during their first semester in the program and 12 clinical hours per week during subsequent semesters. The TD may adjust these values based on experience, assessment of effective self-care, and assessment of professional and practice development.

License-seeking trainees may be permitted to see more clients than the values provided above. This is negotiated in tandem with their supervisor.

Hours & Scheduling

Degree-seeking students are expected to engage in training-related activities for approximately 20 hours per week, and must be available to attend all mandatory meetings, didactics, and group supervision. The rest of the student’s schedule is determined in conjunction with their primary supervisor.

License-seeking trainees are expected to build a caseload of at least ten clients (or an equivalent clinical load), and must be available to attend all mandatory meetings, didactics, and group supervision.

Supervision & Didactics

Trainees can expect to receive one hour of individual supervision per week with another hour of group supervision. Lastly, trainees are expected to attend one hour of didactic trainings per week. Trainees are expected to attend these supervisions on a weekly basis. While, a trainee may miss the occasional supervision, it is not permitted to miss multiple consecutive supervisions without prior approval and arrangements made with the Training Director (TD) or your supervisor. Exigent circumstances will be evaluated by the TD on an ongoing basis as necessary.

Applications and Materials

Delve believes firmly in application transparency and accountability. Therefore, we will not accept any application materials submitted on a student’s behalf. In further pursuit of transparency, Delve may share negative references with the applicant if negative references are received. Letters of recommendation/reference are optional and are viewed as enhancing an application.

Applications should by submitted in a single email to and should include:

  1. A current Vita including history of education, training experiences, skills, and references that may be contacted.
  2. Unofficial Graduate School Transcripts (PDF preferred)
  3. The body of the email can include a brief (~1 paragraph) note of interest. Cover letters are acceptable but not required.

Applications will be reviewed and interviews offered on a rolling basis until positions are filled.
